When it comes to photos on my computerI am in complete disorder. I have no idea where all my pictures are. I know I need to back them up so I don’t lose all those precious memories, but it truly is a nightmare trying to find all my pictures. When I heard the Picture Keeper finds your photos for you and backs them up, I was more than intrigued to try the Picture Keeper out.

It quickly and easily searches for and backs up your photos on your computer (both PC and Mac). Now that’s what I am talking about. Available in multiple sizes, I received the PK4 which should allow for saving up to 4000 pictures! That’s a lot of pictures!

The instructions are very easy to follow – just plug the Picture Keeper in and it starts looking for your pictures and copying them. Using a regular USB drive, I would have had to search for my pictures to copy, then select them all, then copy them over manually. Blech. So much work, is there any question as to why I don’t do that on a regular basis?

While the Picture Keeper was running, I was able to go about my business on my computer – It did not slow it down at all. Huge plus in my world!

When it was through it rang out a little tune so I clicked over to see what the program said.

It told me it had run out of space…It copied 2875 photos. First of all…I have 2875 PLUS photos on my computer? YIKES. Secondly, the fact it did not copy over the 4000 photos it says it could copy came as no surprise to me. Why? Because the 4000 photo estimate is based on the size of your pictures. If you are like me and do not resize your photos, your photos are HUGE and therefore not as many can copied to the Picture Keeper.

Based on the description of how many photos the Picture Keeper PK4 can hold, I would say it stayed true to it’s word. I have 16 MP camera, but had resized some of my photos.

Picture Keeper is available for purchase on Picture Keeper as well as in national retailers, catalogs, and scrapbooking supply stores.  It has recently become available at select Walgreens stores. Around here, there is a Walgreens on every corner. It is nice to know that I can get the Picture Keeper in a convenient location to get Picture Keeper and print my photos!
